Linda worked for years as a waitress at Waunee Farms Restaurant and for the activities department at the Kewanee Care Home. She had also been manager of Suzi’s. She enjoyed reading palms and cards for people. Her favorite color was pink, and she loved to dance and listen to music and especially enjoyed spending time in her pool. Linda was very generous and was always ready to help those in need, whether with her slim resources or with her honest guidance. She was direct but always loving.
